What it Costs

Western Obstetrics believes in the importance of excellent of care being available to everyone. For your standard pregnancy care with your GP Obstetrician and Midwife there will be no out of pocket costs as your appointments will be bulk-billed*. While some additional charges do apply for non-standard services and consultations with our allied health providers, we try to limit the gap where possible.

For your care after birth there will be no out-of-pocket expense to see our GP Obstetricians and Midwives (up to 6 weeks)*.

When you have your baby at a public hospital, there is no out-of-pocket costs through Western Obstetrics**.

If you need to see our Physiotherapist or other members of our maternity support team, there may be a small out of pocket expense. Importantly, we will let you know what these costs will be before you book in to see them.

If you do not have Medicare, please ask us for a quote for your care.
